Words of Caution for Those Who Think They're Beyond Temptation
Odds are, these sins are on your "never" list--things you would never, under any circumstance, do. You love God; you read your Bible, pray, go to church; maybe you're even involved in ministry. As such, you're convinced there are certain sins and behaviors that will never touch you. You're too faithful. You're untouchable.
Yet this is the kind of thinking that sets you up for failure--for doing the very things you think you'll never do.
Pastor and author Brittany Rust was one such person--until she found herself in the middle of moral failure and a church correction. She was bewildered, humiliated and ashamed, but God's grace met her on the ground. Here she unravels the myth of being "untouchable," showing how we start to believe the lie and how we can protect ourselves from temptation. Only when we're willing to admit weakness and lean on Jesus can we truly flourish in this life.
